Vince 08/04/05 06:27 pm Lots of you look at the Friends of Blackwater site as I do. I have about 2 minutes of fame left and I want to spread it around. The web master of Blackwater, Lisa, was kind enough to do a slide show using my pictures. If you'd like to see the show go to

http://www.friendsofblackwater.org/osprey_cam_blog05/archives/2005_07.html

and go to the bottom of the "Fishing Expert" web log and click on the link to the show......

Celeste 08/04/05 07:52 pm Yes Vince, I had written Lisa about how great your shots were and that whenever I am lucky enough to see what you did, I get so excited I am not able to find my cam let alone take shots of the osprey fishing! Great job!
Vince 08/04/05 10:18 pm Thanks Celeste.......I was caught completely off guard for these pictures....I was shooting closeups of ducks...yes, ducks at the time when Draco (my name for him) came on the scene very unexpected. So I had the wrong lens, wrong settings on the camera, and manual focus to contend with, with only seconds to get what I ended up getting.....I went back to the area each day for many, many days in the hope this was a regular fishing hole, but never got the 2nd chance to do better.......Thanks so much.....

Zara 08/05/05 01:07 am Great slide show, I especially liked the one showing the Osprey just about to dive into the water with talons stretched out at the front and heading back to the perch. Thank you.

Marie 08/05/05 01:36 am Thank you Vince...lovely sequence of a fishing expert.
Blackwater is a great site and full of great pics and information.
Celeste 08/05/05 05:45 am I agree Marie....I think of the Blackwater site as our "sister" site.....love the updates/info by Lisa the Webmaster, and now we have the opportunity to learn and observe the eagle nest in the dead of the winter!
Mickey 08/05/05 10:25 am awesome shots Vince!
RonS 08/05/05 11:07 am OUTSTANDING!!! If you do that good with "the wrong lens, wrong settings on the camera, and manual focus to contend with", what happens when you are on your game? ;-) Thanks.
AnneW 08/05/05 11:08 am Brilliant!
Vince 08/05/05 05:55 pm Thanks everyone....You're too kind...I just happened to be at the right place, right time, wrong settings.....lol
